OVO Sound Radio returns for episode 25 today, featuring a guest mix by dancehall legend Popcaan as well as a mix from OVO’s Oliver El-Khatib.
French Montana’s MC4 is due out Aug. 19, but listeners will get an exclusive listen of a new single from the album. “No Shopping,” which is produced by Murda Beatz and co-produced by CuBeatz, is the latest collaboration between French and Drake. Their last big hit was “Pop That” off Excuse My French featuring Rick Ross and Lil Wayne.
While French teased a snippet of the track on Instagram, an earlier leak on Snapchat back in May has got fans believing this was a diss towards Joe Budden. If this proves to be true, it would be the second time Drake has used his OVO Sound Radio platform to address his detractors, famously winning his feud with Meek Mill with “Charged Up” and then followed up with “Back to Back” last year.
The episode is expected to feature music by 21 Savage, who just released a joint EP with Metro Boomin called Savage Mode. Gucci Mane also tweeted earlier today a remix for French’s “Lockjaw” will be releasing tonight. It may or may not debut on OVO Sound Radio, but it is a high possibility. And if Drizzy and Popcaan came together for “Controlla,” let’s hope they debut another collaboration during this segment.
